As I’m working on a document by remote web workplacing back to my home PC as I’m over at Dad’s house this afternoon (yes the Dad who is currently with a hot pink cast and broke his leg) I’d like to answer the question….
“Just installing a server SBS 2003. Why do people pay for SBS and not get 2003 and one other server for Exchange?”
Becuase we don’t need two servers. We really don’t for our needs. Because hardware is robust enough these days. Because we do good backups. Because we have ExchangeDefender to hold our email on the rare chance that something should happen. Because I have built in processes to deal with potential downtime to keep it to a minimum. Because SBS 2003 meets our needs. Because Remote Web Workplace is a perfect remote solution. Because the value of the suite is of more benefit than having separate servers.
…and mainly because….
It flat out works.
(yeah yeah some folks are going to ask why am I following this twitter post as well…)
